One benefit that I was surprised to not find listed is that it has worked wonders for me and my hot flashes! I started taking it on Tuesday, and within a day, I had fewer hot flashes and their severity was less. Now, after only taking it for 5 days, I barely notice any hot flashes at all! I hope others see this and find this useful!
i read your post and started taking epo today hope it helps me with the flashes!!
I just started taking primrose so far so good
Black Cohosh Extract will help your hot flashes. I get half or even less now and they only last 30 sec to 2 minutes instead of 5 minutes now. They also help night sweats too. I notice in three days of taking them. You can buy them at Walmart for about $3.94. I will never get off until menopause is over or it stops first. I have been using it for five weeks now since I started Pre-menopause.
Im 43 years old.. I have been taking evening primose oil supplements for decades...I absolutely SWEAR by these magical pills... It makes my skin feel like butter and I look 10 years younger! I would HIGHLY recommend them for any woman!CHRISTINE VELAMelville, NY
Recently diagnosed with PCOS, I began taking 1000mg a day three months ago, and my skin has cleared up on its own for the first time in 12 years!
I too have pcos and have just bought some would be good if it helps for that too.
How many mg a pill u take and many times a day??
I had the exact same result taking three 1000mg pills per day. I am so grateful to have found EPO!
i just noticed it too! it makes me sleep more restful and great! i take twice a day for sore breast, but i noticed my skin looks better and i sleep better
Is Evening Primrose Oil good for thinning hair?
where to buy chaste tree berry, i hav severe endometriosis n adenomeyoma :(
i had arthritis pain in both kness for six months. dr. said there was nothing she could recommend. hard to walk, sleep, sit for long or get up. friend suggested EPO. i would have done anything. three weeks later, no pain. been fine for over a year. walk all over, knee bends, swim. only took capsules for three weeks. going to start taking again to see if there is any improvement anywhere else in my body. still no pain in the knees. i'm 81.
I have pcos and pmdd, sounds like it will help me, just bought some so have yet to see the results.
I have facial hair and a 5:00 shadow, does EPO help?
I'm 20 and have been taking these for just under a month now, I had really bad PMS before and had tried the (contraceptive) pill to ease my symptoms but it didn't work. now I'm taking evening primrose I have noticed such a huge difference in my overall well-being. for starters I'm a lot happier, I have no mood swings or PMS at all. my skin has also improved and is a lot clearer and more moisturised as well as the condition of my hair and nails. plus on top of all this it is the winter season and so far have not been ill once! (normally I would have suffered at least a good few colds by now but nothing) this stuff is brilliant and I would definitely recommend to everyone out there just for general great mental and physical health :) give it a try, you will not be disappointed!
I just started taking it about 2 weeks ago 500mg and I do not see a difference.
Check if you get pure oil instead of gel caps.
what brand do you use and where do you buy it? do you mix something with it to make the face cream?
Yes, it contains GLA which aids in fat loss. I take two 1000mg capsules twice a day for hot flashes and menopausal symptoms, but have lost about 10 pounds in the last 6 weeks. Seems to help appetite as well as skin problems and aging symptoms. I am 53.
WOW that sounds good. I have been taking Black Cohosh Extract for about a month. In 3 days my hot flashes went from 5 minutes to 30 sec - 2 min. They now last 30 sec or 1 minutes. Just started take Evening Primrose, because a friend of mine told me to take it along with Black Cohosh. I take one 1000mg in the morning with my breakfast and now I have even less hot flashes and night sweat (thank God). I am premenopausal and I just started the 3rd week in December 2012 and I haven't had a period since (happy about that). But now when this happen I got huge type pimples on my back and butt, I gain weight and my right leg & knee joint started acting. I am hoping EPO will help me with these problems. As well as, I need it to help me sleep at night. No moody problems. It's a beautiful thing getting older.....
just started 3 days ago for tendonitus, along w/ astaxanthin...seems to help most by rubbing EPO on elbows
Yes ! It just a natural oil.
Is this oil also be used for facial hairs? Will thiis be safe? Let me know.
could i take evening primrose oil, even though im under 25 years old?
Yes. I wish I would have started it earlier!
I began taking EPO 3 days ago to help alleviate menstrual cramps. I was diagnosed with Dysmenorrhea when I was 16. I honestly swear by this stuff! I take 2 1000mg a day. My cramps are now completely gone, along with my premenstrual pimples. I have dry very sensitive skin with mild/moderate Rosacea. My skin is now more hydrated and less red. I am honestly shocked that I have seen these results after only 3 days. I am 28 and also trying to conceive, so I am also hoping that EPO will help my body create more cervical mucus. Love love love this stuff! If you are thinking about trying EPO but still skeptical, give it a try. It is very inexpensive, easy to find and it might just be the cure you are looking for!
Primrose oils ,I feel sleepy so I don't take daytime, night time I take it.I am not sure it good for skin, but defenetly help for PMS for me, anti- hysteria . lol
I've been using epo for about a year now for my daughter who is now 3 1/2 yrs old. She's been suffering from eczema since she was a baby, steroids cream didn't help her. I see good changes in her skin with lesser dry spot in her skin. My question is how safe it is to use for a child, or what would be the side effect?

Confused.com !!!! :-(
I have heard Evening Primrose Oil capsules can help induce labor. I am 3cm dilated and 8% effaced. Are there success stories with taking the capsule by mouth to induce labor? I have also heard you can insert it to soften the cervix, but I wouldn't want to try that...
I meant 80% effaced, sorry.
It worked for me, but I inserted them "up there". Also having sex can soften your cervix as well since the man's semen can help soften the cervix. But if your body isn't ready to go into labor, nothing is going to help. So, the best way to go into labor is to just wait and let your baby decide when he or she is ready to come out. :-)
Can it be taken by men
I had sever vertigo while taking 1000mg 2x a day. Had the sensation of moving when I wasn't moving, it was awful. Stopped for a couple of days and so far have been ok taking 1000mg just at bedtime. I feel a little more energetic while taking it and every little bit of energy is a big deal for me as I have severe chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia and neuropathy in my feet. When I was off it I felt like my energy source had been unplugged. If I stayed off it for a month or two maybe I would have been ok, but wanted to get back on it as soon as I could. My CRP is always 8 or higher, so anti-inflammatory action is important any way I can get it.
Can a 25 year old man take it for deppration

this is OBVIOUSLY a bias article about Evening Primrose Oil. It only stated the Pro and didn't say anything about the Con. Do your own research.
Can a boy of 24years take Evening Primrose oil?
I've been using it for over a year and the swollen arthritic finger which had limited mobility is completely normal. I have almost no aches and pains in the hip joints and back I was used to. I also have less fat around the stomach. At the same time i started evening primrose I also introduced flax seed oil and psyllium husks.
Help, I started taking Evening Primrose and Black Cohosh together. My hot flashes didn't improve with just the Black Cohosh, but with the EPO my hot flashes were gone. I stopped having periods for almost 10 months, but when I started taking these two together, I became regular again for the last 6 months. My mood improved and my anxiety/panic lessened. My sex drive was better then ever and I had the opposite of vaginal dryness. This was working perfect until I replaced my black cohosh with a higher mg and different brand... I am not completely sure it is the black cohosh (it could be a timing thing), but my hair has been falling out in fist fulls! I thought this stuff was suppose to help keep someone from having hair loss, and it seemed to be causing it. Anyone else know anything about hair loss and these two herbs? I stopped taking them for 1 month and my hair loss was typical again.... but my moods have caused me to go back on it...and there goes my hair!
I have been on primrose for a really long time just love it I take 4 per day at bed time had worked wonders for me! With my mood swings ,nails, hair , and makes me feel great all around . Best price I have found is Costco $7.99 for 400 pills just restocked today
thanks Lorri! I was curious if you found any benefits with regards to relieving insomnia...Someone told me it works well as a mild sleeping aid. Thanks :)
I am a 62 year old male, was diagnosed with MS and I have seen research where EPO may help with some of the symptoms/discomfort. Does anybody have any firsthand information on the use of EPO and if so what was your dose per day. Currently taking Rebif injections. Thanks for any information one may have.
I am a user of evening primrose oil (4 months now) and I can say it is really effective. Lessened my migraine attacks, menstrual cramps, pain and hardness of breast before and during menstrual periods, insomnia, and also no more constipation....^_^.... I am highly recommending this herb to everyone! Try it!
I have used evening primrose oil for years for cystic breasts and have found that it works really well and notice a difference when not taking it. I have also had a regular period, no trouble with infertility or women problems ever . Lisa age 44

Walmart has cold pressed evening primrose oil for $6.
Does Primrose Oil make you any less fertile?
I'm 28 and was in a very serious car accident 12 years ago. I've been in chronic pain ever since, and a couple months ago I started taking evening primrose oil, and at last, my pain is reduced significantly. I also take glucosamine. The combination of the 2 is a miracle! The swelling and pain and majorly lessened, my mood has improved, and I'm sleeping better. Wish I had tried tis years ago.To any chronic pain sufferers reading this 1500mg of glucosamine and 1500mg of evening primrose everyday will change your life!!!!
Can I use EPO while taking glutathione?
do they sell it at publix?
is evening primrose good for men with Psoriases
I'm 52 years old, and my hot flashes started a month ago. I tried black cohash only to be taken to the emergency department due to allergic reactions. I continued my research. EPO along with sage has completely eliminated my hot flashes! I went from waking up several times throughout the night to a complete night's sleep. I'm no longer reaching for a sweater during the day after a 5- minute hot flash. I'm SO thankful I found these little gems!
This Evening Primrose Oil has been a huge tremendous blessing with zero side effects. It has balanced out my hormonal levels in menopause and stopped my bleeding. I have been bleeding non-stop for 8 months now. I don't feel so weak as I did and I feel more balanced and not as faint and dizzy. Thank GOD for natural herbal remedies!!!!!!!!
I take 1000 mg three times daily as prescribed. It works!!!!
I swear by the GNC brand - the only one that works for me. I take 2 500/mg capsules daily for PCOS. I've noticed extremely tender breast and my face is breaking out again. Should I up the dosage and why would it stop work all of a sudden? Avid user since diagnosed 2006.
I have read a lot of the comments about EPO on here tonight and I noticed that not many people tell just exactly how many milligrams they take each day to receive these great benefits. Some do but it doesn't seem to be consistent so could more of you please share how much EPO you take each day with the rest of us? I have only been taking it for a few days now and I take 3/500mg capsules twice a day with food. I have Multiple Sclerosis so I really really hope this helps. It sure seems to have many good benefits so here's hoping for the best for us all....
